In my earlier days of blogging, I use to publish content on my blog daily.
Today, I have gone the weekly route (One blog post a week is most appropriate for me).
I would also like to state for the record, that I have no problem whatsoever with a person wanting to blog on a daily basis. I have said on numerous occasions, “It is their blog and they are entitled to publish blog posts on their blog as often as they like.”
The problem, my friend, is that some bloggers become annoyed when they see too many posts from other bloggers in the feed of their WordPress Reader in a short timeframe.
And, let us never forget the fact, that there are some people who do not want their emails flooded with daily notifications that pertain to newly released content by a single blogger.
Do keep in mind, that you will anger a portion of your fellow bloggers by publishing blog posts on your blog daily (Thus resulting in them unfollowing your blog).
On a positive note, you will attract the attention of those people who love perusing content from bloggers daily (Thus resulting in them following your blog).
So, in regards to publishing content on your blog daily, you will win some and lose others.
Now, with that out of the way, this blog post is for those people who would love to blog daily and, of course, would want to know the best way of making that possible.
Choose Topics That You Are Good At
From a logical perspective, blogging is going to be much easier for you if you actually chose a topic (or topics) that you are good at.
If you know a particular topic from the inside out, you will be in a much better position to complete a blog post that is based on it in a timely manner (This is ideal for those people who have other tasks to do during the day or night).
Do you know what topics you are good at?
Knowing them can help you narrow down your niche.
And, if your blog deals with miscellaneous content like mine, choosing the topics that you are good at will make the content creation process seem somewhat effortless.
Do A Bit Of Brainstorming
The God’s/Goddess’s truth is that you will need to do lots of brainstorming if you intend on writing blog posts daily (There is no getting away from it; it is a requirement).
I talked about how important it is to write down the ideas that occur to you when you are brainstorming in a traditional notebook or a digital modern-day notebook in my post, The Power Of Being Your Own Blog’s Cheerleader.
The more ideas that you have available for future blog posts, the better.
Utilize A Content Calendar
A content calendar is a visual tool ― one that helps you to organize your list of topics that you need to keep track of (Think of it as a timetable that lets you know when as well as which content needs to be published).
To get started with this process, I highly recommend reading, How To Create Your First Content Calendar: A Step-By-Step Guide.
The more organized you are, the better.
When it comes to publishing blog posts on your blog daily, you need to be a lean and mean content creation machine (In other words, you have a lot of writing to do; which is more writing than you could ever imagine).
There is the option of building a rhythm by writing at a particular time of the day or night (However, this is only appropriate if you know that you will always have that particular writing slot available to you).
Another thing that you can do, is to write at whatever time that you have available to you (Which, in my opinion, is a realistic approach; this is due to the fact that the timing is never really right for putting a blog post together).
Over the years, I have learned to turn the proverbial writing switch on by listening to my favourite genre of music while I write (The results are magical and I have succeeded every time I utilized that method; it is one of those methods that you should try out for yourself).
Some people, on the other hand, can only write in silence; if you are one of those people, the smartest thing to do is to write your blog posts in the quietest room or the quietest section of your house.
Begin The Editing Process
If you would like your blog post to appear professional, you will have to edit it (The last thing that you want is for your readers to see a whole set of misspelt words and grammatical errors).
Laney Galligan’s article, How to Edit Your Blog Posts Like a Pro, will provide you with greater insight into the whole editing process.
Do you ever take the time to edit your blog posts?
Publish Your Blog Post
After doing a strict proofreading process and being fully satisfied with what you have put together, it is time for you to press the Publish button.
Publishing a well-put-together blog post will fill you with a sense of accomplishment.
Publishing blog posts on your blog daily can be very demanding; especially when your time is limited and your energy level is a bit low (I really do not envy those of you who have chosen to update your blog with new content daily).
As you have learned, anyone can write a blog post daily if they:
- Choose topics that they are actually good at.
- Set aside time for doing a bit of brainstorming.
- Use a content calendar.
- Begin writing right away.
- Edit their blog posts after writing them.
- Press the Publish button after doing a strict proofreading process and being fully satisfied with what they have put together.
